  • Grants for Organizational Development
    November 27, 2018
    South Arts offers a limited number of Professional Development and Artistic Planning grants to nonprofit performing, visual, media, film, multidisciplinary and literary arts presenting organizations in our nine-state region with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Funding up to $1,000 is available to support the professional development needs of Southern presenters, programmers and curators, to strengthen program design and increase organizational capacity.

    For the purposes of these guidelines, “presenters” are defined as organizations that present or host guest artists for engagements in their communities.

    These grants are very limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so early submission is encouraged. A dollar-for-dollar cash match is a requirement.

    This grant program provides assistance for a wide-range of professional development opportunities supporting resources needed to succeed in the work of presenting. In the past, these grants have been used for:
    • Traveling to see the work of artists being considered for future presentations, or to expand the presenters’ knowledge of an artform
    • Participating in a significant professional development opportunity
    • Hosting an artist planning visit
    South Arts strongly believes professional development for presenters/programmers/curators is integral to success, including traveling to see new works and attending convenings.

    Applications for this Professional Development and Artistic Planning grant program will only be accepted for new opportunities that organizations, under normal circumstances, are unable to attend.

    Consideration will be given to organizations who have experienced an ongoing hardship and have been unable to pursue professional development.

    This funding can support staff’s travel expenses to conferences, festivals, exhibitions, workshops and other professional development opportunities, or artists’ travel expenses for planning meetings with presenting organizations. These grants support travel expenses (for example, lodging and air/ground transportation), admission/registration fees, and other related expenses.

    Details and an online application are available at southarts.org/grants/apply-for-a-grant/presenter-assistance.

    Support is awarded to literary projects that contain both a public reading and an educational component such as a writing workshop. The project can include a single engagement by a writer or multiple writers involved in an event (for example, writers series or festivals).

    The maximum request is 50% of the writers’ fees, up to a total grant of $2,500. Each writer is required to fully-participate in the reading and educational outreach component.

    Projects must take place between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.

  • Open Call for Singers - One City Chorus
    September 21, 2018
    St. Petersburg's award-winning One City Chorus was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding.

    We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. Everyone is welcome - we have no auditions.

    We have a great season planned. We’ll once again be singing songs with themes about social justice, civil rights, and diversity – songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, “Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the Doobie Brothers’ “Takin’ It to the Streets”, Neil Diamond’s “America”, U2’s “In the Name of Love” and other wonderful songs by less-widely-known artists.

    We’ll be singing a concert in the circular Sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Clearwater on December 1, and we’ll be singing again at St. Pete’s First Night celebrations on December 31 at the United Methodist Church. On February 17 is our annual concert at the Palladium Theater.

    Rehearsals are every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum –2240 9th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.

    We ask that our singers contribute $20/year to help defray some of our costs. We sing all of our songs “off-book” without sheet music and we have rehearsal recordings of all the parts online. This helps folks who don’t read music well to learn their parts, and it also helps people who have joined us later in the year to catch up.

    For more information, visit our website at onecitychorus.org.

    Talented students who aspire to be exceptional musicians, actors or visual artists are often faced with financial need that prevents them from pursuing a career in an artistic field after school or during the summer.

    A small grant award can make a world of difference to a student who otherwise would not have the chance to succeed in his or her arts field.

    The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is committed to supporting young talent, just as we support ACE, Arts for a Complete Education, for Pinellas County arts education in public schools.

    Who is eligible: Any artist 10-18 in the categories of dance, cinematic arts, jazz, music, digital arts, photography, theater, visual arts and voice.   Students must be residents of Pinellas County.  Funds are awarded to arts program organizations located in St. Petersburg only.  Funds may be used for:
    • Tuition for summer arts programs
    • Musical instruments rental, purchase or repair
    • Dance shoes, music books and arts supplies
    • Individual instruction or adult master class tuition
    How it Works
    Individuals may nominate students for an after-school, weekend or summer program using our Funding Futures application.  Non-profit organizations may nominate students as well for their programs.

    We ask that you nominate students with financial need who could not otherwise participate in the program. 

    For an application and more information, please email ace@stpeteartsalliance.org.

    You Can Donate to Funding Futures Funding Futures is supported 100% by donations.

    The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance has awarded over $10,000 to 16 students in our first year.  Help make a difference in a child's life.  Donate today HERE.
